Ahead of his time in every sense, Montell2099 has been building otherworldly universes with his progressive, genre-bending electronic music since emerging on Soundcloud in 2015. The visionary production powerhouse based in Auckland, New Zealand has quickly transformed from a shy, small-town Māori boy to signing with American electronic maestro RL Grime’s coveted label Sable Valley and commanding stages worldwide.

After joining forces with close-collaborator Netsky on ‘Broken’ and sharing solo singles ‘Tested’ and ‘Blicky’ in 2022, followed up by ‘Exodia’ with Sublab and Xira and ‘Need You’ in 2023 as well as a feature on RL Grime’s ‘Borderline’, Montell2099 has played on some of the world’s biggest international stages. In July, he made history becoming the first ever New Zealand act to play Belgium’s Tomorrowland Festival, before embarking on 30+ North American show bookings with headline and festival moments, in addition to direct support for RL Grime on numerous Sable Valley Shows.

Continuing to push the limits of the traditional live show experience, this year Montell2099 also shared a surreal new live short film, Live From Lake Alta, the follow-up to the artists 2020 Live From Karekare short film, which has amassed over 250,000 Youtube views. The hypnotizing new visual created by stage production/lighting design geniuses, Human Person (Travis Scott, Drake, Billie Eilish), was shot in the South Island’s famous Queenstown mountain range, The Remarkables, finding Montell2099’s exhilarating electronic frequencies set against the chilling atmosphere of icy mountain ranges. The mesmerizing live set showcases an exhilarating range of new unreleased material taken from Montell2099’s forthcoming highly-anticipated debut album, due for release in 2023.
